romney to explain what paul ryan could not, how he plans to pay for $5 trillion tax cut by only eliminating deductions. >> there's an option. you could say everybody is going to get up to a deduction and you could use your home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and fill that bucket, if you will, the $17,000 bucket that way and higher income people might have a lower number. >> at least the plan has a name. it's the bucket plan. mitt romney will cap deductions at $17,000 for all americans. is that good for the middle class? do the math. for rich americans, the cap, it just might be lower than that. he was very vague on that point as well. the big problem with romney's bucket plan besides being hilarious is it would only cover $1 to $2 trillion of the $5 trillion tax cut. that's according to the tax policy center. they figured it out. even when romney gives specifics he doesn't answer the questions. e we still don't know how he plans to pay for the tax cuts without hurting the middle class. paul ryan is sticking to his reason for not giving any specifics to chris
the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? >>> welcome back to fox 5 morning news. wednesday, october 3rd, 2012. live look outside at i-270 right now. it is 5:30 in the morning. there is some fog. we have a little bit of rain this morning. >> i like how he said that. >> just a tiny bit. >> wisdom has a good voice for that. >> a second career after a retire. fog. >> fog horn. >> it is even denser in some areas than that, isn't it? >> a dense fog advisory for parts of the area. anne arundel county and out to the west too. you don't need a dense fog advisory to find some dense fog. you saw it is pretty much area- wide with all the rain we had yesterday. so a couple of extra minutes for your morning commute probably a good idea. let's take a look at our radar. we are d

and manufacturing. >> governor romney's focus is talking directly to the voters about what his plans are to strengthen the middle class and get this economy back on track. >> shepard: and with millions of undecided voters still out there, the stakes could not be higher. tonight, the home stretch in the race for the white house. plus, it's not just the candidates who are in the hot seats. a closer look at debate moderators and why the pressure is more intense than ever before. and good evening from the university of denver where we are just two hours away from an historic and high stakes showdown. president obama and governor mitt romney facing off here in their first debate. with less than five weeks to go until election day, a live look now at the stage here in denver. analysts say both men have a lot of on the line tonight. the president trying to hang on to what is a slim lead in the national polls and most battleground states. governor romney trying to shake up the race by making his case to what should be the biggest television audience of his political career. here's the format
. romney also plans to point out that the president has been saying, you know, well, some parts of the economy are doing okay and that the recovery is underway. here is mitt rom know camera one of those ads where he speaks directly to the people, no big music and pictures of others that sort of apple pie and motherhood stuff. this is mitt romney saying what he thinks. >> too many americans today are struggling, living paycheck to paycheck. more americans live in poverty than when president obama took office. >> and the follow-up to that the next line in the ad and the next line in the debates will be that the country simply cannot afford another four years. and this contrast that mr. romney is putting forth about what he refers to as the obama agenda's dependency society one which big government and debt continues to grow and people lose their liberty and opportunity as entrepreneurs and business people to make their own prosperity versus what is he promising less government, less debt and more opportunity, shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in denver tonight. governor romney has b
for balancing the budget that makes sense. you know, romney plans to cut taxes for the rich, enlarge the military, no military cuts, basically, and he says balance the budget. well, most economists have said the math just doesn't added a v looking for mitt romney to explain that. give us some straightforward answers that add up and make sense. >> now, erin, it is romney that's going to have to convince the american people because the president is the incumbent. so you assume romney's got to bring the fight to him. when you deal with the big picture economic issues and the economic issues that we're looking at today, how's he going to deal with it? let me give you an example. he was on "meet the press" and david gregory tried to press him on specifics. let me show you what happened. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> well, i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers are going to have fewer exemptions. >> the devil's in the details. the angel is in the policy. >> can you go into a debate, erin, with just kind of talking around it, the devi
about his tax plans. eamon javers is in washington with details. >> i should say the the romney campaign e-mailed me this morning to point out that this proposal that romney floated out there yesterday is not a specific proposal. just kicking around some ideas. but the idea he kicked around was an interesting one. capping tax deduction at about $17,000. that is, you would have a bucket of tax deductions, and you could fill it with your mortgage deduction or other things. so who would this help, and who would it hurt? here's the hypothetical type of guy that it would hurt. this is a hypothetical, but if you're a hot-shot young lawyer making $200,000 in new york city, you've got probably a high mortgage payment relative to your salary. you're paying high state and local taxes. if you made charitable deductions, this is a proposal that might hurt you more than it helps you. so who would benefit under this scenario that romney floated out there yesterday? well, the same hot-shot young legal associate, if he's living in the houston suburbs, renting a house paying low local taxes and not givin
to the running mates to do the heavy lifting. joe biden was blasting the romney tax plan with being out of touch with the middle class. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children by an additional $2,000 a year. how -- all kidding aside, without the boos. stop all that malarkey. this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly ernest. how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify it? >> the romney campaign picked up on that middle class being buried for the last four years during which president obama was in the white house while campaigning in iowa. paul ryan did not miss the opportunity to seize on biden's choice of words. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrati
've got to take them in, which they're not doing right now. romney's plan is, we're not going to mandate that you buy insurance, we're going to leave that up to you, and there are going to be fewer requirements placed on insurance companies, way fewer. romney's basic philosophy is the market will, for the most part, take care of problems in our health care system. >> so how does governor romney attack obama care on the stage tonight when the counterattack, you know, is going to be romney care was the foundation for obama care. >> that's right. that's right. and so what i think romney is very likely that romney will do is he's going to attack this as a tax. i think this because he just started this new ad campaign that lays it out there, he says obama is raising taxes on the middle class. let's listen to a short snippet of it. >> their plan, includes a trillion dollars in higher taxes. even on the middle class. >> even on the middle class, that's the important part. what he's saying is that when obama tells you, hey, middle class, you have to buy insurance or pay money to the government,
. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked tough the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it sees as another gaffe from vice president joe biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest.
policy. the president is looking to beat down some of mitt romney's plan, saying they will add to deficit spending. look for mitt romney to respond to that. they will rule out more specifics there. >>shepard: as you watch tonight, what is the question that the political reporter whose watch these guys all the time think could be a real stumbling block. >>guest: if we get to immigration, in one of the last two segments, about the role of government, immigration will be a tough sell for both of these candidates. neither of them have said much about what they would do. president obama in a second temperature on mitt romney if elected. that could be a stumbling block for both of them. >>shepard: thank you from our capitol hill newsroom. thank you. representatives from both candidates will be coming up in a moment. we will see how each responds to tough questions about the campaign and what each wants to hear from the other side. also, a manhunt on the border this afternoon. federal agents trying to fine the people who killed one of their own. the latest on the investigation on a very busy aft
. if romney comes out and forgets about bashing obama and starts talking about his plan, what he is going to do to create economic reform, lower, taxes, lower corporate welfare, i think that might be a game changer in the market but he has to do that tonight. david: all right. bob, despite the fact you think we're in a recession we are going to have a selloff as a result of that, you do have some stock picks. i was interested in one, holly frontier. it's a refining company. why if you think we're going into a recession would you be interested in refining if we're going to be cutting back on fuel? >> well i think, david, the key reason is, holly is currently trading quite cheaply, six times earnings. really gets back to where their refineries are positioned. they're in the middle part of the country. the rocky mountain area, the southwest part of the country. they're able to refine the heavy oils from the, coming out of canada and from the shale plays in the u.s. so we think they're perfectly positioned to use cheaper stocks of oil to produce, you know, gasoline and liquids that, puts them
about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? say. potomac, maryland man jailed in cuba since 2009 may have cancer. alan gross was convicted of spying after distributing internet equipment to the jewish community and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. his wife says he's lost more than 100 pounds and has a growth on his right shoulder. cue bone doctors say the tumor is benign, but -- cuban doctors say the tumor is benign, but his family doctors say they can't rule it out and it needs to be treated. >>> we are less than 24 hours away from the first presidential debate between president obama and former massachusetts governor mitt romney. both campaigns are playing down expectations. they
the lotion on its body. (applause) now folks, either we go with the romney-ryan plan or it's four more years of barack obama. so even obama did get some good economic news. >> these job numbers show that the president has recovered every single job lost on his watch and then some. that makes the president a net job creator. >> stephen: there it is. obama is a net job creator. so congratulations to robert baird, the guy who got the job. (laughter) but millions of americans are still looking for work. particularly low skilled workers with no high school diploma who face a 12% unemployment rate. now my heart goes out to those blue color workers. all they know how to do is make stuff while we white collar workers have the education necessary to check our e-mail. the problem is, america has lost its good manufacturing jobs to places of cheap unregulated labor like china, vietnam, and the gulag beneath disney world. faster, chakor, they're running out of mickey pretzels. now how-- how is the u.s.-- mickey. (laughter) all for mickey, please don't sue. now how, how is the u.s. supposed to compete wi
was talking about romney's plans to raise taxes on the middle class. but the right and their surrogates are out having press conferences about this right now, probably as we speak. is that kind of going to hurt? >> actually, i think if you ask the voters, i think joe biden proved what's great about joe biden. he gets it. he's in touch. you know what? 80% of the voters agree. this economy has been bad. people have been buried. that's why they want to elect a president and a vice president who get it. who are in touch and will have policies that help the middle class, not millionaires. so i agree with the vice president. i think 88% of the voters would agree, too. >> jennifer: i just love joe biden. he's just -- he's just the greatest. he really is. thank you so much as ever for coming inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> jennifer: you political junkgies, a big tuesday night with big names in "the war room." there are leaders in the feminist movement and then there's gloria steinem. her take on the war on wom
romney's plan to the economy. >> he would double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. ashley: we have the added and the facts the campaign conveniently left out. the nfl gets political, pro football owners and players making their voices heard on the campaign trail fulfilling from their bank account. joining us to talk politics and football in just ...seems like you guys got a little gassed out there. enough already. c'mon guys. next question. hello! what's your favorite color? what's my favorite color? yes. purple. what's your favorite animal? sea turtle. what's your bedtime? do you believe in space aliens? ...i love puppies. hash browns or home ies? home fries. do you like my dress? why can't you guys ask good questions like this?

set you state on this. first of all, governor romney has a very bold tax plan that's designed to achieve more economic growth and lower the burden on middle-class taxpayers. as part of lowering those rates across the board, he believes we have to broaden the base. he talked about this as an illustrative example of some of the discussions that we're going to have. you obviously cannot write a bill on a debate stage. you can't write a bill? n a campaign, but as part of the conversations that we have of achieving the types of reforms we need to have greater economic growth, more job creation that, broaden the base is part of that discussion. there a number of rang of options out there. that happened to be one that the governor talked about. >> he sure launched it. next time you all want to launch a major policy change, you might think about a national platform, mean nothing disrespect to that local station. >> 7 p.m., cnbc eastern time. >> hold that thought, madden. >> former presidential candidate herman cain faced mitt romney in the gop debate. mr. cain knows first hand what pr
talked about mitt romney wants to talk about his tax plan. i'm sure that the president wants to talk about mitt romney's tax plan too. specifically that promise to cut taxes for everybody in a revenue-neutral way. >> well, look. i think the american people would love to hear mitt romney talk about his tax plan and share more details. because we saw in the "new york times" this morning -- well, this is a little unrelated but i still want to touch on it. that mitt romney has benefited financially from his own investments in the time he had at bain. that's something he has been telling the american people something very different on. and when it comes to his own tax plan, you know, he hasn't provided any specifics. the arithmetic just doesn't add up. paul ryan had the opportunity to speak to it this weekend and said he didn't have time to do that. so there are a lot of questions out there. we would love to know how he's going to pay for $5 trillion tax plan for millionaires and billionaires and not leave the burden on the middle class. >> barbara, let me ask that question specifically.
and how mitt romney can talk straight to the american people about how he has a plan to create jobs, specific things, like in my home state of virginia, he's going to allow us to have exploration off shore with energy so we can have good high-paying jobs. that's something supported by democrat senators like mark warner and jim webb in my home state of virginia and something this president has stopped. we're also going to get rid of those job-killing regulations that killed 1,200 jobs in the coal fields of virginia and west virginia and elsewhere. and we're also going to cut taxes on small businesses. cut taxes across the board of a -- across the board tax cut instead of the promise that barack obama is going to increase taxes across the board of the biggest tax increase in history on january 1st. and mitt romney understands that you have to have small business to grow these jobs. and that's the way we're going to invest in small businesses. take the job-killing obamacare regulations that will crush small businesses, but then give -- replace it with good policies that allow businesse
condition. the romney plan is to appeal obama care, which means there will be no mandate to buy insurance. also, he's going to have fewer requirements on insurance companies. he's not going to tell insurance companies what to do, to the same extent obama does. >> let's get to the debate. let's start with governor romney. how might he score points? >> he's recently been running an ad that talks about how obama is putting taxes on the middle class. what he means by this, because we asked, and what he means by this is the money that americans will have to pay if they don't buy insurance, because if you don't buy insurance, you'll have to pay money. you can call it a penalty. the supreme court calls it a tax. and many of the people paying that will be the middle class. zoraida, it's important to remember, this isn't a tax like, let's say, a sales tax which you have to pay. there's no way out of it. you only pay this tax if you choose not to purchase health insurance. >> right. and it's inkra mental, the charge, right, happens over a certain number of years. >> the charge when it starts in 201
they want specifics about the plans of both of the candidates. so i think mitt romney can want get away from getting away from some specific data points. >> there will interesting to see how he gets his voice heard. american cross roads is out with a new ad hitting the president on his record. >> if you don't have a record to run on, then you paid your opponent as someone people should run from. >> not taking responsibility. not getting results. not telling the truth. we can't afford anymore of barack obama's weak leadership. >> certainly heard paul ryan bring up that point on the trial saying you point your other person, you don't have a record to run on. the president does have a record he will address, but the point is you say for president obama, be in control, paint the picture, don't filibuster. that is important for the president about taking responsibility for the record, the good and the bad. >> yeah, in terms of like be in control, when you're talking about a debate where there's not a lot of rules if you will, there's tho time limit on some of these questions. that creates an oppo

that? >> governor romney addressed that and he's talk baggy broader plans to help 100% of americans. bill: you referred to joe biden's comments. will that come up tonight in. >> that will be up to the moderators. bill: will governor romney be pointing it out? >> i think it's an important point. president obama's own team has admitted that the middle class has been buried under his policies. you know, it was a slip of the tongue, perhaps by joe biden, but it's what every american already knows. there are 23 million americans struggling for work. so it comes as no surprise to them that they are struggling and have been buried. but it was just interesting to see that the obama campaign would admit it. just yesterday too we saw a study come out that says middle class families because of president obama's lavish spending are going to face a $4,000 tax burden per year per family. so this is just not anything that we can afford for four more years. bill: i asked ben labolt about this, does the romney campaign have an official response, or what are you saying about this speech from june of
and that their game plan for tonight, as it was laid out to me, is to make sure that trajectory as one romney campaign source put it continues. they want to see the race continue to tighten. it is interesting to give you a couple of nuggets i got off the phone call a few moments ago, they are not going to be looking for a knockout punch tonight. what they're hoping to do for the american people is show a contrast, a clear contrast as they call it between the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mos
was trying to make was that he was saying the non-partisan tax policy center argued romney's tax plan will push a higher tax burdennen onto the middle class. >> it as liberal think tank that would take any numbers we put out and say it was bad. the fact of the matter is an independent study said it would lower middle class tax burden and governor romney's plans talk about reducing the tax burden specifically on the middle class and small businesses to help growth economy, foster innovation and put more people back to work. it couldn't be further from the truth. i think that this administration lacks the credibility when it comes to talking about job creation and anything that would support growing the economy and helping business. megyn: you heard your friend talking about how things made a bit of a recovery and how they stopped the bleeding and created all these jobs in the private sector. president obama argued it won't happen overnight, he needs another term. >> in 2008 again he came forward and said we face serious problems. i'm the guy with the solution. i know how to fix it an w
